Tuesday October 16th
StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo

Match day 3 commences with Police FC and Express facing off at Lugogo in a bid to garner their first victory of the virgin season.

Both sides are languishing on the negative end of the table with Police FC sitting 14th and Express a place higher.

Abdallah Mubiru’s team has lost both its first two league games with an identical scoreline of 2-1 to Paidha Black Angels and BUL FC.

Express are yet to flourish under their new coach Kefa Kisala and will hope to raise from the 3-1 defeat at the hands of Mbarara City in their most recent match in Kavumba.

Kisala is confident his team will flawlessly do the necessary work to clinch their first victory, He says

” It’s high time for Express to start winning so we come into this game knowing that. We have ironed out a few shortcomings in the attacking department so we are going to score and win unlike previously.”

” We are going to make some changes in the defense as well as improve our defending as far as set pieces are concerned.”

Skipper Julius Ntambi is still sidelined together with midfielder Badiru Nsubuga.

” The fans should be patient with us, we know our team must win but still our players are a new crop, they need utmost patience because we are in a process of building our future success.”

He added

The attacking trio of Tony Odur, Michael Birungi and Congolese starlet Eric Kambale is expected to inspire Kisala’s charges come tomorrow.

The cops are expected to make few changes especially in the defensive department with Tayimour Kimera bound to start for the first time this season.

Ronald Nyanzi, Ashraf Mugume and Ben Ocen will be the men to watch on Police FC’s side.

The Red eagles have had a lion’s share in the previous 16 league meetings between the two sides winning 6 and drawing 6. Police has won 4 of those including an emphatic double last season.
